THE CORPSE FLOWER IS BLOOMING! I’m ridiculously excited about this!

The Denver Botanic Gardens Corpse Flower is set to bloom for the first time ever. It could happen any day now (original estimates were for between the 16th and 18th), and the Denver Botanic Gardens has set up a live stream of the event. Who knows when the flower will bloom, but if nothing else, the people watching is fun, if you like watching person after person taking selfies.

I was listening to an interview earlier this week with one of the botanists, and she said at one point it was growing nearly 4 inches a day...which is just incredible to me!
